  1. I replace all X head, slotted screws with torx or hex socket bolts, millions of choices some great multi size boxes, just buy good quality and of course only one driver will fit .
  2. Bit of a generalization as to flappyness. I have several and can confirm the non-flappyness of the metal parts
  3. Many generic XT60 and EC3 connectors fit together perfectly safely.
  4. The multi pack/head circlip pliers are ok starters but they can be a little wobbly in use and the pins quite thick. I picked up a Blue Point/spot set for a good price I also use them for the car etc. Worth a look https://www.amazon.co.uk/Blue-Spot-8702-Circlip-Pieces/dp/B0751KDT3V/ref=asc_df_B0751KDT3V/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=697365262289&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=16185319749415978973&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9044929&hvtargid=pla-423204258141&psc=1&mcid=e3c58e363c4032bfaa3a565aebf6965c&th=1&psc=1&gad_source=1
  5. Whats funny about a Smart Car, I have a Smart 452 Brabus Roadster Coupe (library picture attached, not mine so feel free to clone that number plate) and took two models to the patch on Tuesday, Max Thrust Ruckus daily starter, 1400mm FMS Zero. Could possibly squeeze in my old Multiplex twinjet with edf conversion. Not claiming it was easy and that there 'a vertical stab wedged up my nostril but we got there.
  6. Looking at the original picture they could be school kids so perhaps direct them to a club in their area, is there an adult contact. Safety 1st.
  7. 2 dowels and elastic bands to hold the wing on. Looks pretty sound, could be up in the air with a couple of hours work.
  8. A friend has this, I recall it came with a stabilizer similar to the FMS Reflex system, that has different connections as well. Just fit your preferred brand of non gyro RX. A test, Beaver or Tasman all day
  9. Hi Simon, we've talked Concorde before, I believe you've built a couple if not more. Im still stuck on time and evenings aren't really possible so ARTF would be my current limit so a 60min couple of screws to chuck in suits me now. I have built before and spend way too much time on detail and finish, first sign of a wrinkle in covering and it will all be off if I cant get it out. I did consider converting the Robbe to EDF but it would need 30mm items to stop it looking too terrible so until there is more oomph available at that size its staying with its upgraded pusher power.
  10. I've thought about the TN Concorde, and had a TN Typhoon. Have heard of strange design issues but perhaps these are real builder models that require experience in problem areas. Probably wouldn't buy a TN model again as once the cash was handed over for items they were as useful as a chocolate teapot, no replies to emails and calls go to answer phone and no reply. Will have to content myself with my fully restore and upgraded Robbe Concorde until one of the big boys bring out a edf foamie, hopefully Xfly.
  11. So really as I suggested there is no more risk in sending them if properly wrapped than Evri or any other provider allowing them to be sent "with the equipment they power", so not necessarily within the item they power? Therefore a electric model flogged on ebay could be sent "with" dozens of say 6s 5000mah lipo's as they power the model.
  12. The lipo one is interesting. Evri/Hermes and others state you can't ship them but I have received batteries from retailers using the exact same delivery options and delivery providers. So I have shipped them on storage charge with the plugs taped over and extremely well packaged. I keep the original battery delivery packaging. What's the difference?
  13. The scammers, often "know" someone interested in what you are offering or what you are looking for and post an email address to lead you away from the site or they are very busy and will send an Uber/cab driver with an envelope stuffed with cash to collect, this a Facebook favourite. On site I've had no luck selling or buying. Agreed to buy a transmitter some time ago, agreed everything with the seller who then failed to forward any info for payment etc and stopped responding!
  14. I have a new home for your Typhoon, MK24 and is that a DH Hornet?
